Padre seeks to have a positive impact on the communities within which it operates.
Corporate Sponsorship of Community Organizations. Padre makes annual donations to community non-profit organizations such as: youth and high school athletic programs, health associations, scholarship funds, Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and Veterans of War.
Staff Sponsorship of Charitable Organizations. It has become a tradition of Padre employees to celebrate the holiday season in part by collecting donations from staff and distributing the aggregated funds to charitable or public service organizations. Donations have been made to organizations such as the Seva Foundations, Ojai Raptor Center, Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center, and California Education and the Environment Initiative.
Donation of Services. Padre staff has been providing mediation services through the Ventura Center for Dispute Settlement (VCDS) on a pro bono basis since 2008.
